In order to design a prosthetic device, it is essential to analyze the movements of the limb that it is replacing. For improvement of prosthetic design, it is important to understand the limitations of current designs. The main purpose of this study was to evaluate the kinematic and the kinetics of transradial prosthesis users while bliaterally lifting a box, for experimental input of a biomechanical model. Creating a model for the movements of a transradial prosthesis can lead to its design improvement, selection criteria and virtual reality training.
